Hailing from small vegetable farms,
cattle ranches and grain farms covering thousands of acres, the
producers in The New American Farmer, 2nd edition have
embraced new approaches to agriculture. They are renewing profits,
enhancing environmental stewardship and improving the lives of their
families as well as their communities. The second edition builds
on our popular first book. We’ve updated many of the profiles originally
researched and written in 2000 and added 14 new profiles to represent
every state and two U.S. territories. The book now features more
than 60 successful farmers and ranchers. View

The profiles in the online version, like the print edition, are
divided into four regions. See the left navigation bar to view profiles
by region, or to search by state, featured commodities or problems
addressed. Or view just the
14 profiles printed since the first edition.
